Riddles
« on: July 26, 2008, 07:16:00 PM »
This thread is basically like the FFXII trivia thread but it is not related to FF. I wasn't sure if this should have been put in forum games or off topic so if a moderator wants to move it that is fine obviously. I will start by putting in two riddles. If you want to answer one please put the riddle number and then your answer.

Here is the first riddle:

Three guys stay at a hotel for a week. The bill comes to ?30 so each man pays ?10. A few days later the manager of the hotel notices there's been a mistake and that the room actually only cost ?25 so he gives the bell boy ?5 to split between the three men. The bell boy sees a chance to make some money so he gives each man ?1 back and keeps the remaining ?2 himself. So, each man has paid ?9 for the room because they got ?1 back. This means you have the three ?9 each man paid which is ?27 in total and you have the ?2 the bell boy kept. What happened to the other pound?

Here is the second riddle:

1. There are 5 houses in five different colors.
2. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.
3. These five owners drink a certain drink, smoke a certain band of cigar and keep a certain pet.
4. no owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar nor drink the same drink.

THE QUESTION IS - WHO OWNS THE FISH?

The Britt lives in the red house.
The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
The Dane drinks tea.
The green house is on the left of the white house.
The green house owner drinks coffee.
The person who smokes Paul Mall rears birds.
The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
The man living in the house right in centre drinks milk.
The Norwegian lives in the first house.
The man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
The German smokes Prince.
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.



If you're trying to out riddle number 1 focus on the wording. Whoever solves it can post another riddle. If it takes longer than 2 weeks for someone to solve the riddlemaker should give out the answer so the thread does not become inactive. Every 5 days a clue should be given. Good luck! ;D

BTW, Mike (ElliotMajor) cannot answer this riddle because he already knows the answer.

i think the first one is nothing happened
30 - 3 = 27 so each man paid 9 each

the remaining 27 - 25 = 2 that the bellboy kept himself
that was a real play on words

#1 and 2 should take some time

1. It was a jetpack?
2. She's heating up milk to put in?
3. You don't bury survivors
4. Roosters don't lay eggs.

If any of those are right i won't post another cos otherwise some will be forgotten. These are the ones we already have. I know 3 and 4 are right.

This means you have the three ?9 each man paid which is ?27 in total and you have the ?2 the bell boy kept. What happened to the other pound?

One of the three guys have it. Because...

Each boy got a pound back, so that makes 3 pounds. The bellboy kept 2 pounds. The total cost was 25 pounds, and the money that was left was 5 pounds. 3 pounds (boys) + 2 pounds (bellboy) = 5 pounds.

Here is my riddle:

I make computers crash.
I can do your homework.
I make people laugh.
I can destroy the world.
I make time stop.
I can turn a car.
I make people cry.
I can sit still.
I make everyone dance.
I can go invisible.
I make bikes stop.
Can you guess the riddle?

here's kind of an easy one

Samuel was out for a walk when it started to rain. He did not have an umbrella and he wasn't wearing a hat. His clothes were soaked, yet not a single hair on his head got wet. How could this happen?
